The conililiiins which prevail rela
tive to procuring a supply ol coal for
the needs of residents in North Vancouver city and district are of a nature to niaiua-a- public indignation and
to call (nr prompt and forceful action
upon the part of the people for their
own protection. Tliu only reason that
cun be attributed »'liy such u protest
has nut Ik-cii lodgiil before Iliin with
the provincial government is that the
public ut lurge have uot hitherto
been niuile iiwul'e ol the facts.
The situation according to a statement prepared by locul dealers for Ihe
Iliiunl of Trade is as follows
"Our local dealers it the present
lime ure compelled to gel their supplies IliroUgli Vnncouver coal merchants, which is mil only Unfair to
them, lml also imposes a great hardship upon lhe residents of this 'ity."
"In the first pline, having to purchase through Vancouver dealers not
only melius Ihul our lucafCHeulers arc
compelled in pay a considerable advance on mine prices wbicb advance
piusl of necessity be imposed upon our
Industries und residents, bul also ul
the present season when u coal short
age exists in Vancouver our coal supply is completely cut off until such
lime us llie full requirements of Vancouver Have bum satistied. Thie we
consider not only an injustice, but uu
unwarranted imposition, us we leel
thut the iiiy of North Vancouvei has
now arrived ui a stage in ils history
as u cily ihni -...iiuiiii. (lie cutleries
ol II. (,'. in 1 'ei'ogni/iiig it us the centra ol the roal supply for this district, and therefore being prepared to
|.|.i<. our locul coal dealers on llie
.nm. busi,- us to supply uud price us
is granted to tlie mill dealers of Vuneouver city."
The  terms  employed  in the  above
Statement wilh reference to the situation are I'Mii'inely moderate und   do
not    bej/in  lo d'i the mutter justiae.
It is un exhibition of barefaced  pre;
lumptuousneas ol the most intolerable
order' that a lew middlumi'11 coul deal
ers  in the city ol Vuneouver   should
havu the temerity lo suy to the   entire community ol thousands   of citi-
sens   residing   on   lhc   North   Shore,
"you  shull  not  procure  a pound  ol
Vancouver isluml  coal   williout   in 1
obtaining our consent nnd even   then
nol without (laying us a royalty upon every pound thut wu |ieiniil you lo
burn."   iSo lur as is known tin sc men
wbo are ex| loitiug the public lor private gain in lliis offensive manner do
not  own  any portion of its  mines
from which llic coal is brought  and
bave no rapitul iuvostsJ (herein.   As
a   rule   they do not cveli bundle   the
coal that they so condescendingly allow Norlh Vancouver to procure.    Al-
r-iar   the   coal   leaves   the   mines il is

The question is often asked: "Why
do annuitants live longer on the average than other people 1" Tbe great
Iactor in the question Ol course Is,

have the least worries. It is a truism

present however were many who could
not claim bonnio Scotland aa their nn-
tivo heath, bnt who, nevertheless warp
heartily welcomed and joined in the
li'stivities with tbo leal of a genuine.
The ball w«l appropriately designed
to auit the occasion. Hums' laying!
were everywhere to bo Men and bis
portrait at the head ol the large auditorium facing bver the gaily array-
od tablet gave a silent and forceful
effect to tba proceedings. Ona could
pot help admire the lowly born whole
name now is a household saying in
almost evory part pl the globe. Say-
en large tables were laden with ull
manner ol good things mid alter all
were eoatcd there only remained tbo
bringing on of tbe haggis to denote a
completeness. The sound of the pipes
[rom the direction of the litchin
brought every eye to attention and a
murmur ol applause spread through
tbe building Mlbon the standnrd
bearer Mr. I). 0. Hick, appeared beading the small procession. Behind liim
Wat Maister Lister piping the lmgg.s
in with a fervor truly Scottish. Two
flag bearers followed and bringing up
tho roar waa Jock Swanson lurrying
the "grent chioltuin o' thc puddin'
race" tho haggis. Twice tho snail
procession cjrc|ed the tallies wham thoy
departed and Uev. Hooper said the
Selkirk grace. Aflor sup|ier the chairman, 1'residrnt .1. It •). Hurray, proposed "Our King" which was icspoml-
i'd to with the National Anthem. In
proposing thc next toast "Hums' lm
nun (nl Memory" Heeve McNaught do-
Innil that when Hums was on this
earth he was & vastly different person
Ihnn ho appeurs to tho present day
generation, At that time he may have
had his fimli ■. human Irailtiea to
which the world's races aro subjected,
but today Burns is looked on almost
in the light of a saint. With ail thc
failings attributed to the bard "wc
•Scotchmen love him still," emphatically remarked the roove. "Al a teacher and everything that ii grand in a
mun we have none to escual him," hc
suid. "II lluni. hud been othor thon
ho uus, lacking fuults, he would not
huve probably I n revered.     It   wa-i
the lii.'i ol his manly indciiendence
that drew his admirers to him. As n
lecturer he wai unsurpassed in his
pictures of the different shades and
sides ol lile and particularly wus this
naiii.a.nl,,. in his [wn picture of tha
"Cotters' Saturday Night" portraying the true nature which drew Ibis
lifelike picture. What has the world
got to equal his songs und to stir the
hearts ol his audiences us those ol
Burns, he asked. They may not havo
tickled Ihe our but they warmed the
heart. Tho toast was druuk standing
in silence.
Mr. .lolin Alciunder in thc absence
of Aid. Smith, proposed tbe toast
"Itohnic .Scotland Our Native Hcuth."
Ile considered this wat ia.-.i in im-
poituinc to the reeve's toast. In almost overy part ol tbc globe were in
Ihi found the sons and daughters ol
Scotland uud he believed thut if it was
possible to got an expression ol opinion Irom those tho world over it would
be (hut then wai no land to iurpu
"Our own Bonnie Scotlund." In this
country there was milling .10,(111
Snitch folk a small plant, but he
Imped that some duy n soil would lie
found where the Scottish heather
would thrive. Mi. A. I'hilip responded, llo said lie wus proudlo respond
to a ua li a toast. Ho uskod why il
wus that the Scotchman was so de-
vntasl to 'his native land. It may bc
her wildnoss and glens but asiurudly
hu thought it was the freedom that
Scotland hus won hor inde|wndence
uud her name.
They aay Siotihmon art canny, but
lhat (anninncsi has made them the
men they are, bai instilled in them
lhat stubbornoss und perseverance
that won her her independence.
Mr. T. A. Martin propoied tht tout
"Fair Canada Our Adopted Home."
Although « southerner, ht wai as
much a Scotchman at any, derfarad
Mr. Martin. We like to-ba adopted by
rich parents he wont on and it tale to
lay that Canada ii one of the richest
homos in the world today. To Mayor
McNeish who was lo respond he would
Hint to remind him that hs was not
only an adopted ion but wai newly
adopted by tit city ol North Vancouver.
Mayor McNtish 'tit honored at being
osked to respond to this toast, He
depreciated hit ability to deal with oll
the bounties that nature has Host bia

to equal Manitoba wheat and tlu product of tht other provinces, minerals,
fish, lumber and agricultural products.

Thut w|is "The Lasses."   llu proponed
this, whieh vm responded to with

tuust "St. Andrew's und Caledonian

cniiiiy, observed tba doctor. That
may ba for the mason that they cannot get other peoplo to understand
tham aa they -understand themselves.
Er-Ald. W. J. Irwin rotpondnd. Hp
said lha merits aud advantages of lho
St. Andrew's Society were not to be
gainsaid- They helped to hold tbo
lies wiiiili bound them to their mother country, it alio revived tho old
traditions and history that aided the
sons and daughters to carry thii
noble work nn In other and adopted
lands. Tho socioty also wos a means
nl extending the hand ol friendship tn
now arrivals from, the old land and
making them throw off the strnngeness
lhat naturally thoy would loot on entering new surroundings. Interepeis
ed in tbo, toast list were songs by
Miss Findlay and Mr. Kon Donaldson
und a recitation by Hr. 1). 0. Dick.
The next item on the program, previous tn 'the hall being cleared lor tho
tripping ol the light fantastic to
which all lho young as wMl as many
of the older folk were looking forward
wiili much pleasure, was thc Highland
Fling by the Hisses Hannah und .lane

Hounds of applause woro accorded
Ihem al the conclusion nl thoir per
formanre. 'ITie dance was then on and
continued to an early h.iur wlnn
late curs conveyed the guests to
their homes. A message wus received
Irom Alex. Morrison, president ol the
Vancouver St. Audmw's and Caledonian Society expressing his regret nt
not living able to be present.
"11 you havo never seen llrcgon,
